When Time magazine named Stanford biologist Nathan Wolfe as one of their 100 most influential people on the planet earlier this year, they described him as a "swashbuckling virologist" and credited him with running "the CIA of infectious disease." In reality, there is little about Dr. Wolfe's Global Viral Forecasting Initiative that is either covert or ominous; what is frightening is the deadly new pandemic age that he is convinced awaits us unless we take preventive measures. In this revealing new book, this well-traveled scientist walks us through this viral storm, describing its probable course and proposing effective countermeasures. More exciting than any movie; an expert's view of an impending catastrophe.
